Backed by IDEMIA, WiZink cards can be digitalized and used with Samsung Pay for all users, while also benefiting from all innovative Samsung features and options that Samsung Pay users can access. With the novel and convenient payment method, users can add all loyalty memberships and vouchers to the same wallet under the same app. WiZink is in a position to give customers a seamless fully digital contactless payment experience.

Backed by our in-depth, tried and tested expertise in coming up with digital payment services, we can offer Samsung Pay a bespoke and fully functional solution. Given that contactless payment is becoming ever-more widespread in Spain, we pledge to give clients optimum ways to arrive at novel, scalable and user-friendly solutions while maintaining strict security.

Ricardo Gómez, Director of the Operations, Technology and Service Channels Area at WiZink added: “IDEMIA has become our partner in which we have entrusted to offer our customers the best innovative and secure payment options, such as Samsung Pay. His experience in the management of projects related to security in the use of credit cards has been an essential factor for us.”
